In honor of World Poetry Day on March 21, some of our Leadership team were encouraged to participate in a poetry contest. We asked them to write about Phoenix. Our President & CEO himself, Phil Melugin, graciously did the judging for us.
Congratulations to Ursula Gorman and Audra Cummings!
Their thoughtful, winning poems are now proudly displayed on our website and social media. Ursula was awarded first place, and Audra took second place. It’s an honor to share their thoughtful words.

Together We Will Soar
Written by Ursula Gorman
There are many challenges in this life,
Challenges that bring stress and strife.
Our eyes may grow dim and our strength may wane,
But to be alone and struggling is in vain.
Phoenix Home Care will be there,
To help alleviate the burden you bear.
From small tasks that drain your strength,
To providing care and love we will go to great length.
Phoenix adores those in our care,
With you we have so much love to share.
From the very young, to the young at heart,
Everyone deserves a New Beginning of which Phoenix wants only to be a part.
Compassion is at our inner core,
With Phoenix you aren’t alone, and together we will Soar!

Written by Audra Cummings
The ashes smoldered, destruction complete
Tendrils of smoke claimed the defeat
Then something stirred in the embers soft glow
A dream not defeated by the strength of it’s foe
From this dream Phoenix Home Care became
A company of worth no others could claim
Serving clients with compassionate care
True to the commitment to always be there
Compassion, honesty, and patience are things
Phoenix holds under it’s wings
Guiding our steps as we make choices
And lending strength to our voices
Rising to challenges we face every day
Encouraging those we reach on the way
We strive to be the best in this Field
And to our competitors we will not yield
We are Phoenix and like lions we roar
We are Phoenix, and as Phoenix we SOAR!
